Where are all the teachers? – On twitterPosted: October 11, 2011
Haven’t tried social networking yet? You are not on Facebook, come on, you most likely are and you have found FaceBook to be a fun and great resource for what is going on among your friends!
But have you used the same type of social network in your professional life? What is going on out there? Have you developed a professional network of friends? Do you need some new ideas for that lesson or have one to share?
Where do you think I get all of my ideas for oldteachnewtech? Blogs, Tweets, RSS feeds, etc.
In the latest rankings, Twitter was still the number one resource being used by teachers for collaboration. Give it a try (view the movie below to get started) or try one of the other sites listed below that are a little more organized.
The top 5 teacher sites for sharing ideas, blogging, discussing curriculum, sharing of resources, articles, videos, discussions, leave your own comment, … are:
